Our commitment to delivering the best chicken, turkey and pork to your family's table is born from the belief that all families deserve to eat well. At Harvestland, we work with family farmers who raise our chickens, turkeys and hogs to our high standards, so you can feed your family affordable, healthy food raised with no-antibiotics-ever and on an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products in the feed. Our family farmers understand that respect for the animals and land goes hand-in-hand with raising healthy food. Some of our family farmers are seventh-generation farmers. Look for the family farmer name on our whole, fresh chickens. Meet some of our family farmers.
Our no-antibiotics-ever chickens and turkeys are raised in temperature-controlled housing with fresh-air ventilation, continuous access to feed and water, room to move about and periods of light and dark.
Our no-antibiotics-ever hogs are raised in both enclosed houses and open-air structures, depending upon the farm. In both, animals are given room to move about freely and fresh-air ventilation.
Our USDA Certified Organic chickens are raised with free-range access to the outdoors. Multiple doors the length of the chicken house and spacious ranging areas encourage the birds to venture outdoors when the weather is safe for them.
We never have and never will!
*Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones or steroids in poultry.
Raising animals with no antibiotics ever goes against the conventional thinking of many food companies who believe you need to continuously use antibiotics to keep animals healthy. That's because when you don't use antibiotics, you have to start with a healthier environment and put more effort into keeping the animals healthy. That includes a clean environment with fresh air and more room to move about with fewer animals in the same space.
As an added assurance, our animal welfare programs are audited. This includes the USDA Process Verified Programs for our no-antibiotics-ever chicken.
In addition, our organic chickens are raised to the strict standards for USDA Certified Organic, including free-range access to the outdoors.
All of our animals come from farms on some of the richest agricultural land in America, where the tradition of raising wholesome food runs deep. Our no-antibiotics-ever chickens are raised in the hills of western Kentucky, the agricultural heart of middle Georgia and the fertile farm country of the Carolinas, and our turkeys come from Indiana farms. Our hogs come from America's heartland, including Indiana, Iowa and Ohio. Our organic chickens are raised in and around Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, the Skagit Valley region of Washington State, California's Sonoma Valley region and on the Delmarva Peninsula.
